The injen comes with a heatshield where as the AEM does not. It's a SRI when it comes down to it so it'll suffer from heatsoak regardless but having a heatshield as opposed to not having one... eh. :)

:iamwiths: the heat shield is there, but does it really work!? AHHHH NO...
I'm getting the Comptech Ice Box, I suggest the same, but at the end it's what you want, also do a search. :D

Short ram designs are great, and in most cases better than cold-air. The problem with the RSX is that the engine bay gets so hot and the intake sucks up air coming off of the header which is bad. But shorter rams are generally better than long cold-air pipes. (But cold airs on the RSX are nearly the same length as short rams.)

The RSX is an unusual car.

If you're only going for show, there's no point in getting a cold air intake because you can't really see the thing. As for performance, get a cai because it sucks in cold air (as name suggests).

Injen and AEM have similar gains in both sri and cai. Here's a link where Chris's did an intake shootout. Look for yourself to make your decision easier.
